and the specks seem to be around what i would expect a bolter to be cappable of, especialy the 32 round clip
Yeah, but that's tripod-mounted, like previous dooper cannons. The AA-12 is handheld and nearly recoilless.

Thats a pretty powerful gun. But to be honest with you, the XMS assault rifle will probably over take it. I can't see it being phased into regular troop platoons for sometime.

Is there anything cooler than a drum-fed AUTO shotgun?

Oh, a drum-fed auto grenade launching shotgun.

No, if it's only advantage over a regular shotgun is that it can fire explosive rounds there is already the MK19 to do that and over a greater range with more explosive payload. And the MK19 can fire canister rounds with again a greater payload than a twelve gauge.

Most of those weapons are sapport weapons, as such not so much bolters as a special weapon to upgrade a squad.

As for its bolteryness, sure in its implementation it's a special upgrade weapon, but in what it actually *is* and what it *does* it is basically a boltgun (12 gauge is .72 caliber, bolters are .75, pretty close).

It is, for all intents and purposes, a proto-bolter.
